to have you here. as we look at the latest polling out of pennsylvania showing mitt romney within striking distance, just four points separating the two candidates, 49% to 45%, so within the margin of error here, a $1.2 million pennsylvania ad by the romney camp, should the president be concerned? >> well, you're always concerned in elections. when i ran for election as mayor, i got 81% of the vote, i was concerned. that's number one. but number two, this is a sign that the romney folks know that ohio is gone and the only path to the electoral map is to expand it and get a pennsylvania or a minnesota or a michigan. and so it's really a hail mary pass. the polls are between four and six and you don't make that up in a week of television. if mitt romney had started in pennsylvania right after his first debate with that great performance, it might have made a race here, but it's too late. they have got a lot of money so they have got no reason not to low the hail mary pass but it's not going to make a difference here. i believe it is a sign of real desperation that they concluded that they ca
, pennsylvania, to blunt some of this romney move. pennsylvania, i don't really buy that competitive. i have been keeping a close eye on it for a long time. if it is going to be, it's going to be because republicans will be able to turn out a large number of voters if in the western half of the state, pittsburg, erie, johnstown. the darnestown congressional district is now held by congressman mark kris, the only district in the country to have voted for john carey in 2004 and john mccain in 2008, the only district that slipped from democratic to republican in between those two elections. was are the voters president wants, clinging to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october
, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish the record of creating jobs in the united states. remember, this new romney jeep ad claims that all factual statements in it, the implication is different, but the statements themselves say jeep is being built in china, which the ad says for the implication, of cou
into michigan. you see where romney is headed, pennsylvania. i thought these states were settled. are they still up for grabs? >> yes, they are definitely up for grabs. charles what is happening is these were supposed to be safe seats and safe states for obama, but what has happened is people have watched mitt romney, and they see a consistency of leadership and a very steady approach. they are -- those undecideds are are breaking for mitt romney. so all of a sudden, michigan, pennsylvania, iowa, minnesota, you're looking at states that i think you are going to see mitt romney with a great opportunity to win these states. charles: representative blackburn, you know, there's no doubt the first debate, you know, changed everything for mitt romney. it feels, though, that maybe the second and thirds were lost opportunities, certainly that amazing momentum that he had. you can't argue that it hasn't stalled, which brings us to this toss-up scenario. is there any sort of anxiety out there among your party that golly, you know, just maybe one thing could have been different, this would be a no-brainer
. romney trying to expand the playing field to include pennsylvania, michigan, where thage in recent polls has chunk for obama. team obama scoffs. >> i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of the three states. >> in pennsylvania, romney pulled to a virtual tie. the president has edge in margin of error according to a flank and marshall poll. in michigan, virtual tie in margin of error in "detroit news" survey, though team romney acknowledge they need a come-from-behind surge. the final push is dubbed the romney-ryan real recovery road rally and begins with who's who of congressman and governors and luminaries to spanning out through 11 battleground through the weekend. romney visits virginia tomorrow when the new national unemployment numbers are scheduled for release and wraps up in new hampshire, where the national telegraph newspaper that backed him four years ago endorsed romney today. >> on the romney press bus as we roll toward evening rally in jacksonville. romney campaign held teleconference with reporters this afternoon and said winning is possible, though not cer
.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground st
romney has gone behind enemy lines. he's parachuting behind enemy lines in pennsylvania and in michigan and in wisconsin and in iowa. he could be in trouble, keith. >> pennsylvania hasn't voted for a republican since 1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct
pennsylvania is a state that has become in focus again. one week away. the romney campaign is up with a new ad in pennsylvania. curiously. let's listen to one part of it. >> obama: if somebody wants to build a coal fire plant, they can. it is just that it will bankrupt them. >> announcer: obama kept that promise and pennsylvania coal paid the price. >> jennifer: so the romney war room wants to keep it close in pennsylvania. how are democrats going to keep the president's lead with attention focused on the storm aftermath? >> well, they can hope for that. some days i hope my hair will come back but that's not going to happen. [ laughter ] this is straight out of the republican playbook. this is nothing but the old okey-doke. they want to act like they can actually do something in places where they know pretty much the ball game is over. president obama is going to win pennsylvania. they know that. we know that. everybody knows that. yet they want to act like by running some action ds -- ads at the last possi
sent him in the first place. >> sean: here's the deal. they gotta send joe biden to pennsylvania because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >> sean: which ones? >> they're all sided. >> ask juan about the npr poll. >> go ahead, dana. >> let's talk about the npr poll. an 8-point swing? >> there's a margin of error, dana. hold on. dana was around in '08, i'm sorry, back in '04 when the poll said that kerry was going to win in a landslide. didn't happen, did it? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >
. rasmussen shows romney ahead by two in ohio. i would say it's dead even but it's also pennsylvania, wisconsin, it's michigan, and pennsylvania -- minnesota. no matter what they try to say today, there's no way that chicago -- the obama campaign in chicago thought that seven or six days before an election they were going to have to fight in minnesota. they just -- it never entered their mind, and now they're having to do that, and the fancy footwork is very admirable, but i don't think it will -- i don't think it will take them too far. however, the storm i think you'll see president obama's approval rating which has not gotten above i think 47 or 48% % almost his whole presidency. i don't think it matters. >> sean: in all fairness, it would have been nice if he responded the same way to benghazi and answer questions. >> oh, stop. that's so unfair. >> sean: it would have been nice if he responded to the calls for help and the requests for security and telling us the truth. >> the decision he made to go to vegas that night after the attack in libya when he knew that the ambassador ha
in michigan. there are new polls in pennsylvania and minnesota that show that mitt romney is within striking distance and maybe even more telling, because you don't just follow the polls, you follow people and money, bill clinton was campaigning in minnesota yesterday. do you think that the obama campaign is worried about these states? >> i would say that i would get worried or i think maybe increase the level of concern about these potential battle grounds if you saw the principals going there. the most precious resource that a campaign is the candidate's time because that's finite with only six or so days left. if you send surrogates like bill clinton to minimnesota, you don really lose anything by doing that. it's kind of a plus plus. so i think it's a smart strategy. if i see more polls coming out of minnesota or michigan or pennsylvania showing this a close race and showing the president's numbers down to 48 or 47, then i'll get concerned. up until that happens, i'm not going to be that concerned about those states. >> so if romney is concerned then we would see romney making a stop in
be an uphill battle this win? >> no, neil, i think we've encouraged governor romney to come to pennsylvania, we believe it is much closer looking at polling done by statehouse and senate. this is a different election than 4 years ago. and i think he can be successful here. neil: we shall watch closely, governor thank you for taking time out of your pressed schedule, tom corbett, republican of the fine state of pennsylvania. >> coming up, is "new york times" politicizing the storm. neil: we saw something today that, i do not care if you are left or right it would leave you with a jaw-dropping. >> and trading will resume. tomorrow morning, we're there live on this fine network, eastern time, through 10:00 a.m. taking you through well a market trying to get back to business, and capitalism trying to get back to business, tomorrow morning. a lot more now. neil: all right, i want to show you something, from "new york times," paper that said it was a mistake, railed against mitt romney for politicizing benghazi. this is something, big government says in this. you have to read to believe, disaster col
. quote, romney campaign desperate. putting up ads in pennsylvania and minnesota, prove he's struggling to find a new path to 270. that prompted the romney campaign to respond with a tweet of its own, spokesman ryan williams, quote, nervous. obama campaign says minnesota and pennsylvania aren't battlegrounds but running more than 1.1 million in ads there. the baaing and forth on twitter, ben. who to believe. i'll say this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton did visit not a few -- not but 72, 36, some ente ger of 12. >> this is one you should totally ignore what these guys are saying and look where they're putting their money. that's the key resource, the key decisions at this point. where does the candidate go, the money go. to this point they can lie all day, too late in the campaign to get caught on it and look where the resources go. >> you know, i think it was mark halperin who said this, eric, that, you know, romney could have done this earlier. he could have maybe forced obama and the campaign to redirect its funds to states where they didn't want to have to play. just on
ronald reagan retired. you usually put it in the pennsylvania category. do you believe mitt romney's within the margin of error in michigan? >> i tend to think -- i tend to give the benefit of the doubt to good polls. >> that's a good poll. >> that is a fine poll. i'm interested to see when governor romney or congressman ryan makes a trip to michigan. and that will tell you that they actually believe that there's a chance of winning michigan. as of right now, i think ann romney's been in michigan recently, but watch the travel schedules. right now, as mark pointed out before, governor romney is in florida today, three stops in florida. we saw the tightening in north carolina, too. this map's getting complicated in a lot of ways. but watch the travel schedules of these guys, and you'll see the extent to which they think that's a place they could actually pick up. >> friday through the end, governor romney's campaign is doing a huge surrogate thing to try to counteract bill clinton to some extent who's a super surrogate all by himself. mccain, rubio. >> who do they have? meatlo meatl
a lifeline to pennsylvania, minn. desperate. the obamacare response that with team romney now spending money in north carolina, that battle ground may not be locked down as much as the gop had hoped. they may also get word tonight that michigan is about to get a defensive and paste from the president. a state he thought he had lock down. we will find that who is expanding the map and give his blessing one week from tonight. lou: thank you. our chief white house correspondent. the campaigns may be at a standstill, but the candidates now have i great deal of work to do. well, much more on the political campaign, hurricane sandy's impact on the selection. it will be talking with the "a-team" and the role of the clintons in this campaign. bill clinton showing up almost everywhere. the administration's less than transparent you of benghazi. best-selling author ann klein. extensive damage through the eastern seaboard, the cost to rebuild a staggering as well. liz macdonald with our report. record-breaking sandy stranding the residence of the country's largest city, forcing the closure of subways,
pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back
, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are not advertising in philadelphia. they don't want the obama campaign to janelle to their turnout machine and
: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many are trapped if their homes. the national guard rescuest ahead, and, also, there were buses coming out of harle
, cynical thing to do. >> reporter: but the romney campaign does see some positive signs out there, especially in pennsylvania, minnesota and michigan. three states that have been considered solidly democratic, but where the obama campaign is now suddenly playing defense, spending more than $1 million on tv ads for the final week. diane? >> also on the campaign trail, jonathan karl. thank you, jon. >>> and coming up here next, flammable gas leaking and it's not just a danger in the storm zone. look. our experiment tonight on this invisible threat. hi, i just switched jobs, and i want to roll over my old 401(k) into a fidelity ira. man: okay, no problem. it's easy to get started; i can help you with the paperwork. um...this green line just appeared on my floor. yeah, that's fidelity helping you reach your financial goals. could you hold on a second? it's your money. roll over your old 401(k) into a fidelity ira and take control of your personal economy. this is going to be helpful. call or come in today. fidelity investments. turn here. but between check-ups tartar builds. keep it c
: that was governor mitt romney earlier today laying out what he thinks will happen in just a few short days when americans cast their votes fora. a poll of registered pennsylvania voters show the president two percentage points behind where he was just last month. governor romney enjoys a five-point boost. it's 48-44% puts the race within 4 points in pennsylvania where it was 54-49 in november. detroit suggests a similar swing in voter sentiment. romney close the gap in michigan the detroit news. chris stirewalt is the host of power play on foxnews.com. governor romney is buying ad time and the president is trying to match him while sending bill clinton and joe biden, to minnesota and michigan all thought to be in the blue-state column in this election, because he's trying to head fake us or he has a legitimate shot of winning those election tore kwral rich states. >> part of the reason is that there is so gosh darn much money in this year's election neither candidate is abiding by the old limits on spending and the money is out there so both candidates have deep pockets in their campaign, they
we are now seeing a push by the romney campaign, minnesota, which has 10 electoral votes, pennsylvania, which has been blue in the last three presidential elections, 20 electoral votes there. what is the strategy here? let's bring a man who knows because he has been there. ed rollins former deputy chief of staff to president reagan. also managed a campaign for mr. reagan's re-election in 1984. he has had major roles in nine other presidential campaigns and a fox news contributor. >> good morning. happy halloween. bill: we almost forget it is halloween, right? so much else going on but not for the kids of course. so interesting to note, when you look at michigan and minnesota, and pennsylvania, why are, why are we seeing this sort of last push into some of these democratic territoris? what is the strategy, ed? >> two reasons. the basic strategy is still the same. you're still going after florida, ohio, north carolina, virginia and some of the other states but these, races are all closing up. polls that we're still functioning two days ago. and i think there's an excess of
democratic states, michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania. the romney campaign says it's evidence they have expanded the map. the obama campaign says it's a sign that mr. romney has run out of routes to 270 electoral votes, the number needed to win so they are throwing hail marys in new states. little evidence to back up obama spin on that, savannah. three new polls out from the "new york times" showing the president leading narrowly in three states, pennsylvania, maryland and ohio. >> tamron hall is over at the news desk. new york. >> reporter: offer closing its doors for two days for the first time in its decade they reopen this morning. cnbc's mandy drury is there. mandy, good morning. >> reporter: thanks for that. the lights are own and traders have returned to business. hopefully things returning to normal. mayor bloomberg is ringing the opening bell after two days of being in the dark. we've not seen close here in the markets in the united states for 1888 for two days due to a weather-related event. things that we're look for, stocks impacted negatively by hurricane sandy, hotels, ret
do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>> mitt romney's momentum has some of his team arguing he can win states like pennsylvania, minnesota, and even michigan. but democrats aren't worried. just listen to what obama senior adviser david axelrod said it it today about it on "morning joe." >> i will come on and shave my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. if we lose minnesota, michigan, or pennsylvania you will shave off that mustache? >> yeah, on the show. >> yes, but what i should do is make a deal with you and say you'll grow one if we win them. >> right away the political world was buzzing about the bet. "the washington post" wrote, david axelrod recklessly endangers an american treasure. i agree with that one. and the american mustache institute chairman says, it's incredibly irresponsible for axelrod to be playing games with such an exceptionally powerful mustache. that's coming from the chairman. the mush stan even got its own twitter account. do you think the mustache bet is a good bet? we want to know. head over to facebook/politicsnation. it's the
, not looking good for romney. to me the issue is this. there are states on the map that could have been competitive. oregon, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania and even maybe where obama had big margins in 2008 like 15, 16-point margins but you have to go back to 2004 to see, you know, a three-point race in minnesota. a three-point race in michigan. these are states, there's a lot of flexibility in these states. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think it would be a position now where minnesota could be in play or oregon. we see polls with the races in mid single digits in the states and minnesota right now and finally talking about it a little bit. romney doesn't have a single field office there. they didn't make the effort and stuck trying to win ohio. i don't think they can. >> just to be clear, giving alaska to romney? >> that's in -- leaning. >> bold. >> to your point, we did the maps separately and didn't know what we were going to do until we decided but the
the latino community but people across the state. >> finally pennsylvania, there's a lot of talk out of pennsylvania that senator bob casey is in some difficulty, that pennsylvania is closer than it should be from a democratic perspective. >> for any of these states mitt romney has been trying to compete in ohio, trying to -- it's been hard nut for that campaign to crack. they haven't been able to. now they're playing this bluffing game of trying to expand the math. our belief is the math is set. same states we've been talking about. no way i will dye my hair black and wear a fake mustache if they win pennsylvania, michigan or new mexico. these are not states we're concerned about. of course we're on the ground, competing for every vote but this is a bluff by the romney team. >> we've got a jen psaki and david axelrod bet. this will be interesting. >> it will be. >> you're watching live pictures of staten island as you can see quite a change there as well from this storm. and we'll be right back. loating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day >> question t these dig
week, then suddenly mitt romney's pathway to 270 gets very, very narrow. >> so david, that's joe's take on this. shawn spice we are the romney campaign on earlier saying they're expanding the map and looking at pennsylvania, minnesota, as well. even though the numbers at least in pennsylvania certainly are not there or minnesota. they claim that they are looking not just at ohio but expanding this map. do you see any sign of momentum or whatever the catchphrase of the day has been? >> no. i think it's a hail mary pass and your own chuck todd earlier in the day in d a brilliant illustration of why the romney campaign has to do this. because ohio really is falling off the table for them. if they rely only on an ohio win, they're probably going to lose. they're trying desperately to open up a new front but, you know, my colleague that spoke earlier mentioned the hurricane. believe me. i think there's a dotted line between what happens on election day and the images out of new jersey and elsewhere. fema has always been a sort of talisman for your view of the proper role of federal governmen
in pennsylvania, michigan, oregon. may i finish, please and so it is all of the polls, the nationwide vote is moving toward romney, but it's not moving in the swing states, which seems odd. it means that they are not swing states. lou: it's important to put it in perspective. these political, really political viagra. bottom line, all these surges are artificial. more than four days. get a new poster. >> i think he should have lynen dunham on your show to talk about that. >> that's terrific. lou: i would never argue with such a metaphor. thank you. >> that's hard. lou: you know what, what can i say. moving along. back to you know. i think that is not exactly accurate. there it still problems and polling. by definition it is a science, sometimes an art, but the romney sears's real one. it has taken on states that matter. colorado, nevada, ohio. right now that came is concluding very quickly. this is that are still open, nevada, colorado, ohio. tightening up. they decided. lou: is there momentum? is that momentum at the very least? whenever the effect may be from hurricane sandy? was that int
